BIKERS are more likely to have problems in bed, new research shows.

Studies have already claimed cyclists face an increased risk of impotence and now a Japanese team say motorbike riders, of whom there are 3.5million, mainly men, in Britain are likely to share the problem.

They say it is because pressure and vibration from the saddle reduces the blood supply to their genitals.

Doctors in Osaka, Japan, found 69 per cent of riders had erectile dysfunction compared with 35per cent in the control group.

The older the biker, the worse the problem was. More than nine out of 10 over-50s had signs of impotence.
